Genie Introduces New Lift Guard Contact System
The Genie Lift Guard Contact Alarm system offers a contemporary that can provide additional operator protection. Engineered as an electronic secondary guarding system, the alarm is designed to activate and alert others that an operator may need some assistance. This brand new accessory is now configured as a standard accessory on most new Genie articulated and telescopic boom models and is active whenever the foot switch on the boom is enabled.
How Does It Work?
The alarm system uses an activation cable fitted above the machine’s control panel. When pressure is applied to this cable, it disconnects and activates the system and stops all machine lift and driving functions to prevent additional platform movement. An alarm then sounds and beacons flash notifying people nearby that an operator may require assistance.
Advantages of the System
The Genie Lift Guard Contact Alarm is simple to use and can be easily used in conjunction with operator training required by industry standards worldwide which could enhance safe work practices on aerial sites. Offering a robust configuration with simple parts, the guard contact alarm design provides excellent visibility of the control panel and surroundings for the operator whilst not interfering with machine operation.
